Synopsis

Traces: Traversing the Past – During the summer, a team of four well-seasoned travelers tackled the Siberian taiga – more than 500 kilometres of the hostile North by foot and inflatable canoes. Yet the goal of this ordeal was more than a physical challenge. Gediminas, Viktoras, Darius and Vigimantas traveled to the long forgotten lands where thousands of deportees struggled to survive more than sixty years ago. The story of this expedition connects the horrific past with the modern day will to remember it. An interactive documentary project encompasses the trials of this expedition and the past events that linger in the subconscious of the Lithuanian society.
